Tamara Private Hospital unveils stage two of $10m makeover


Tamworth’s Tamara Private Hospital has unveiled stage two of its four-stage, $10 million upgrade, revealing a new state-of-the-art operating theatre, theatre staffroom and education area and new day surgery pre and post operating areas.

Residents from Tamworth and surrounding areas are now able to access the operating theatre, a Stryker iSuite, which features advanced technology and innovative surgical equipment.  

Tamara Private Hospital CEO, Trish Thornberry said the new iSuite brings the hospital’s total operating theatres to four.

“I am pleased that we can now provide services using advanced technology and help even more patients to receive leading private health care close to home,” Dr Thornberry said.

“The next phase will include a new reception area and new centralised sterilising area to accommodate our four operating theatres.” 

Stage three of the development will commence next week with the fourth and final stage to be completed in May 2023. The final stage of the development will include an advanced endoscopy unit for all colonoscopy and gastroscopy procedures which will complement the new theatre area. 

“Tamara Private Hospital is committed to providing leading private health care for patients,” Dr Thornberry said. 

“These new facilities will allow us to continue to service the growing population of Tamworth.

“I want to thank Ramsay Health Care for this investment in health care in our regional area.”
